This is a generator which creates ready-to-use, responsive, styled, google maps in UNLIMITED COLORS! You customize various map settings, then, a map is auto-generated for you. When you like the resulted map, just click a button "GET MAP" and you'll receive a code you can copy-paste in your website to display that styled map.

This generator is UNIQUE because it's the only one on the market which allows you to set practically ANY COLOR for the map. This way, you will be able to replace the classic look of google maps with a new, modern, improved one, which matches your website colors. You can also choose among 500 included map icons! What makes it also unique is the fact that the generated maps will auto-center on any screen and will also auto-center when the window is resized (most maps don't do that). At the end, when you finish the customizations, you can copy-paste the generated code to include the map in your web page.

Installation steps:

  1. Download on your computer the ZIP file purchased from codecanyon.net
  2. Extract its content in a local directory.
  3. Inside the folder extracted you will find two folders:documentation (contains the help file) and generator (contain the generator itself)
  4. Open the file index.html from the generator folder
  5. Customize the map settings from the panel at the right side of the page (colors, controls, etc).
  6. When you obtain a map you like, just click the "GET MAP" button and you will get a ready to copy-paste code which you can insert in your page to display that styled map.
  7. To reset the generator at its default state, you can click the RESET button.
  8. For the full list of possible map parameters, please see D) Configuring the map
